Unfortunately due to Jack Frost over the weekend, we had to cancel our Captains Drive in. It is now scheduled for next Sunday 26th. Everyone in the club wish Vincent and Susan all the best for 2020. President Millie Webb and Junior Captain Jake Lindy will tee off also. To celebrate we have a Straight Scramble with Shotgun start at 11:30 – contact Pro Shop for entry details. We will have hot beverages on the 1st Tee – so come along and get the year kicked off in style. A big crowd is expected so don’t forget to put your name on entry sheet.
